of arkansas and north dakota, but don't leave kansas behind. in kansas the republican legislature just passed an anti-abortion personhood bill late on friday. it declares that life begins at fertilization. yes, all three states are advancing abortion bans with legislation like this. but kansas goes an extra step. kansas law mandates that doctors have to describe to their patients an unproven scientifically dubious made-up link between abortion and breast cancer. there is no link between abortion and breast cancer, but the state of kansas wrote this script and will now mandate that doctors read this lie to their patients. the bill now goes to sam brownback, the state's republican governor. according to a spokesperson, he is almost certain to sign it even though he hasn't read it yet. governor brownback said he will sign any anti-abortion bill and so far he has kept to his word. so that was friday night in kansas. this was saturday morning. the very next day right after kansas republicans passed their sweeping doctors have to lie to their patients bill, the national republican party tapped kans
